★★★★★ ABOUT LILIANA ★★★★★
Liliana Velasquez has crossed the border between worlds all her life. Raised in both entitled North and volatile South America moving back and forth from Colombia to the USA, she is a latina incognito; just white enough. She absorbs and creates diverse cultures through and against the immigrant struggle of her parents. The American Dream her parents taught her was “you can be anything”. Their Catholic faith taught her otherwise. And as a young lady you were only meant to silently stand by. This tug of war fueled her and being a woman never stopped her from doing it her way. Liliana shares her loves, her aches and her transformation into an independent thinking woman. She is proud to be queer and not perfect. She transforms from kept child bride to hairdresser to dominatrix, from ticket tout to art muse. The play explores her turbulent NYC years, her struggles, successes and failures, revealing emotional trauma, exuberant and hedonistic experiences – putting a new slant on the the speed hump phenomena when using (vaginal balls…?)
Liliana Velasquez has crossed borders all her life. Raised in Miami Medellin and New Jersey there is no role she cannot play and her comedy reflects this extravagant mix in her Latina-tude, Catholic guilt and American dreaming. As an adult, Liliana recklessly explored NYC, slipping in and out of different art forms, costumes and jobs. She has so many outrageous stories to tell, it would horrify her proud parents, Only now do they admire her comedic outlook on somany mistakes. Always hungry for new challenges, Liliana soon found another platforms for the performance that is her life: Berlin Neukölln. She is proud to be queer and not perfect, and enjoys waking up in the afternoons.
★★★★★ ABOUT SCOTT ★★★★★
Scott McBurney is a Scottish comedian working from Berlin. He is the sort of guy who likes his own Facebook posts and asks his mum for advice on jokes. Despite turning 30 next year and living in Berlin for half a decade he has still got to figure out what “Runter von der Bühne” means. It’s his longest enduring piece of feedback, and he’s not sure how he feels about it. Scott has written and starred in the hit one-off theatre show Danny & Spencer try their hardest, opened for acts off the telly such as Judah Friedlander & performed a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 18’.
Join him as he works through a head full of misunderstandings, confusion and half baked ideas most likely spoken below fully baked eyes.

★★★★★ ABOUT OLIVER ★★★★★
Sharp, punchy, multi-lingual comedy with 1001 voices, accents and sound effects. An act born on London’s brutal open mic circuit and honed in the Standup wildernesses of Eastern Europe, where a bad show could catch you a bullet.
Born and raised in North London with English and Serbian parents, no amount of university or corporate success could deter the dream of smelly basements and the adulation of 50 people a night. 8 years experience on stage on 3 continents, a sizeable life experience chuck. Lesbian divorces, Japanese anime, waterboarding, it’s all in a days work.
